Justin Trudeau's life turned into a superhero style comic book

He's been a teacher, a politician and even an actor in the past, but now Canadians are set to see their prime minister like never before, as Justin Trudeau is being made into a superhero style comic book character.

Trudeau's colourful life is set to be depicted through the unique storytelling style of comic books. 

Political Power: Justin Trudeau is set for release on Sept. 16. 

The 24-page book comes from TidalWave Comics as part of their “Political Power” series, focusing on political figures around the world.  

Previous titles have profiled Barack Obama, Donald Trump, Condoleezza Rice and George Bush. 

The synopsis, which sounds like it could be the plot of a superhero action movie, reads: "Pierre Trudeau, the 15th Prime Minister of Canada, was a powerful force in Canadian politics. When his son, the charismatic teacher with camera-ready looks and an easygoing nature, delivers the eulogy for his father, Canada — and the world —took notice."

It continues: "A voice for the youth and calming presence during troubling times, Justin Trudeau became the 23rd Prime Minister of Canada and a media sensation."

According to author Michael Frizell, the goal of the book is to offer a "non-partisan profile of the political figure."

" Justin Trudeau is popular around the world, but like any person, he’s not without faults. As a writer, I need to find a way to balance the positives and negatives and distill a person’s life and career into a little over 20 pages or about 100 pictures," he adds. 

“Non-fiction stories are sometimes more entertaining than stories involving capes and tights,” says the book's publisher Darren G. Davis.

“In this case the news far-out passes traditional comic books."

While the book sounds like an interesting idea, the jury is still out on whether or not Trudeau's comic book alias actually looks like him.
